Frequently Asked Questions
What will my ORGANIC gear look like?
ORGANIC Climbing Products in which you can choose colors are made one of a kind by recycling our cutting scraps in your choice of colors to build your items multi color arrangement, this allows us to offer unique artistic hand made items, recycle our fabric scraps and ensures production flow and economics for customer. Please note we are not able to guarantee designs without custom charges and email communication prior to placing order. Here is a handy video showing how our process works. https://vimeo.com/244065791
All of our gear is made to order per your color request. After you order we will begin cutting and sewing at once, standard orders cut and sew in 3-5 business days (we work a 4 day work week so M-Th are business days) in most case from date of payment. If you are need of the item quicker please send us an email to:
and we can get a quote for expedited shipping for you right away. Please note CUSTOM Design orders can take up to 6-8 weeks for sewing we will provide timeline during initial quote.
Color Swatches and Color Matching?
We do the very best we can to display the colors available in our online color tiles. Please note however that these can vary slightly by computer screen and we do not guarantee their accuracy on screens so please use them for general color guidance only. Unlike graphic design on computers or Paint, Heavy duty Textiles are not an exact science and while our Cordura Nylon Suppliers are the best in the business each dye lot (batch of fabric they make) can vary slightly. As the months and years go by we purchase alot of fabric from our suppliers and it can vary slightly in shade. While it is to their tolerance it may not be 100 percent identical to a batch months or years ago. Our goal is to make the most durable products possible and slight variance in color will in no way affect the quality or durability of the product.
